St Ives Town Reserves v Mepal Sports


Match Report

St Ives Town Reserves 5-0 Mepal Sports FC

Manager Tony O’Donovan bolstered his very young side with with some experience in the form of “old” St Ives town favourite Scott Fielding and it paid dividends with him showing a calm finish ten yards out after 15 minutes. A knee injury soon after prevented him playing any further part with the Ives still one nil up.
St Ives played some of their best passing football this season and were unfortunate to only add one more goal before half time when Kian Pilkington produced some lovely skill to set up fullback Bailey Baker with a far post finish.
After the break young saints continued to dominate midfield allowing more chances for now a rampant Ives. Bailey Baker scored his second on the overlap from the back with a smart finish. Ben Smith fouled in the box got up to calmly slot home the resulting penalty. Smith again was involved in the fifth with a smart pull back for Jamie Stork to supply a first time finish from just inside the penalty area.
Saints continued to dictate play in the middle of the park and their passing football was too slick for a spirited Mepal team.
